Here’s a video explaining, in detail, the steps involved in creating a foreign language translation of the game. If this sounds like something you are interested in, please watch!
Alpha 4.21 is now available. This patch fixes a few minors bugs but primarily adds some behind-the-scenes enhancements to support foreign language translations. You can download the latest version from itch.io:
Remember that you can report bugs and discuss the game on Reddit at http://www.reddit.com/r/rotp
Foreign language support – enhancements have been made and updated text files are being sent to translators for review. Everything should be “fine”, but if you see anything weird in the diplomacy text (including the diplomatic incidents text on the Races screen), let me know.
Ship Missiles – missile stacks in ship combat were not killing enemy targets properly. They are now much more effective. Bug involving missiles attacking colonies is NOT fixed; still working that one
Empty Weapon Slots on Ship Designs – these were sometimes causing subsequent weapons on the design to not fire in combat. Should be fixed.
Colony Production going to zero – there was an underflow bug from excessive spying causing this. It’s fixed!
Thanks again to all of the testers for their great feedback!
